Maintenance - March 5

On the 5th of March 2020, starting from 8:00 CET (4th of March, 11 PM PST), the server will not be available for 5 hours due to the application of Update 0.31.5990


List of Update 0.31.5990 Changes

AT Squad Rebalance

Due to this type of Mechanized Infantry performing better than intended, we are introducing several corrections to it:

  • Slightly reduced the viewrange and camouflage
  • Increased the camouflage penalty from firing
  • The AT Squad can no longer fire at distances longer than their viewrange
  • The accuracy of Tier 3-5 AT Squad somewhat reduced

Griffin 120mm Rebalance

We are introducing the following changes to the Griffin 120mm Premium Light Tank:

  • XM1111 MRM-KE shell base penetration reduced from 670mm to 640mm
  • XM1111 MRM-KE shell penetration increase with distance improved from 10 to 15 percent
  • XM1111 MRM-KE shell damage increase with distance improved from 10 to 15
  • XM1111 MRM-KE distance for maximum penetration and damage bonus increased from 200m to 250m

These changes stemmed from the fact that this shell was not only performing extremely well at long distances, but was better in practically any situation than the standard APFSDS ammunition, even when it wasn’t really intended. The abovementioned changes make it a bit better at long distances (the way it was intended) but somewhat worse at close ones.


  • XM1111 MRM-CE shell no longer gets intercepted by hard-kill APS (like other HEAT shells)
  • Gun depression improved to -11 degrees since the vehicle geometry allows it
  • The amount of ammo carried improved to 48 rounds
  • Made small improvements to movement physics of this vehicle, resulting in more realistic behavior in some cases

We are introducing a number of improvements and fixes to the new Battle UI:

  • Improved the appearance of your vehicle’s health bar
  • Improved the appearance of the “You are spotted” indicator and added a sound effect to it
  • Added a setting, allowing you to display or hide the ammunition of your vehicle (hide altogether, show only for the active weapon, show for all weapons)
  • Added a setting, allowing you to display or hide the health of your target (hide altogether, show only in the Sniper mode, show always)
  • Fixed an issue that cause outgoing and incoming damage to appear incorrectly in battle in their respective tabs
  • Fixed an issue where APS and smoke icons could overlap with consumable icons after a respawn
  • Cruise control icon is now hidden in the Replay mode and the Spectator mode

  • Fixed an issue where the locked target indicator did not change its color based on the state of your weapon
